Artem Sitak has completed a perfect start to the US Open for New Zealand's four double hopefuls although a clash with top seeds awaits in New York.

Sitak and partner Robin Haase of the Netherlands won their first round match 6-4 6-2 over American duo Denis Kudla and Dennis Novikov.

It sets up a second-round date with French top seeds Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who are the defending champions.

On Wednesday, New Zealand Olympians Marcus Daniell and Michael Venus tasted first round success with their respective partners, along with Marina Erakovic in the women's doubles draw.
